Book Review: The Past, Present, and Future of Poop
In “The Other Dark Matter,” Lina Zeldovich surveys the history and science of how human sewage is handled.
When you are interested in systems and sanitation a book about the history, science, and future of poop is intellectual catnip, so when I heard that this one by colleague Lina Zeldovich was coming out I signed myself up for an advanced copy. I read it over a weekend, and knew right away that even people who don't find poop as compelling as I do would love devoting time to this fascinating read. The books editor at Undark kindly accepted a pitch for my first ever published book review, and here we are. Highly reccomended.
